Took the family up to Lake Tahoe and rented kayaks to get everyone out on the lake to experience this incredible lake. Kayak Tahoe has locations at several spots around the lake and we chose Baldwin Beach. The staff is amazingly helpful and friendly. They gave us some kayaking tips and then helped us shove off on our adventure. We... More

We took the Emerald Bay tour for about 4 hours with John from the company - a very friendly, mellow and informative guide. We absolutely loved it. Emerald Bay is so beautiful and we kayaked from top to bottom. We stretched our legs on the island, learned about the original Scottish keeper and saw a shipwreck on the lake floor.... More

Kayak Tahoe has a few different locations. We chose to use the location at Baldwin Beach, which is the closest location to launch and paddle in to Emerald Bay. They do have kayaks available in Emerald bay, but we didn't want to deal with the congestion and having to park and hike in. We arrived at Baldwin Beach around 8:30... More

The location is perfect because it was just far enough away from all the crowds but still walking distance from Ski Run Marina. The price was good and the staff was super friendly and helpful! My 2.5 yr old loved it!!!! Not to mention the quality of their equipment was great! Would definitely go back!

We rented stand-up paddle boards from Kayak Tahoe on Pope Beach and they are so friendly, helpful and top notch customer service!! My daughter had been asking to try a paddle board - so we did and what fun that was! They provided a life jacket for both of us and because she is younger than 15 years old (must... More

We debated on whether or not to rent from Kayak Tahoe due to the fact that we had never kayaked before. We decided to give it a try; loved it!! They even gave us a quick crash course before sending us out on the water. We rented the double kayak for the all day rental and had so much fun.... More

My husband and I shared a double, my nearly adult son took off on a single and we had a wonderful time nearly two hours, paddling nonstop. Don't go out for more than two hours unless you're really used to kyayking. We went west as the coast was far more interesting than the eastern, Nevada side.

We took off from Baldwin Beach. Renting a kayak was easy, guys here were friendly and very helpful. We kayaked from Baldwin Beach to Emerald Bay. I would suggest wearing sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. Also, pack a lunch with a few waters. Dock anywhere along the shoreline and take in the views! This was the highlight of our trip!... More

We kayaked in Emerald Bay - beyond words! It was very easy to rent a kayak - took about 15 minutes to sign release forms, pay, and receive a 5 min lesson & instruction.
